FSA Blue Nation.

Posted by plainoldbread on 19 April 2019 in English (English)

A blue nation in the FSA would be great for new mappers who come from the United States to map out their cities before they get a nation. It would make the cancerous mapping go to someplace more suitable for it. It is a great place to start mapping if someone loves to place highways everywhere. Plus it would be more realistic considering the FSA is the OGF equivalent of the United States.

Firstly, no. Secondly, i do like the idea, but outside the FSA. I don't map there, but FSA's states were supposed to be like any other territory an user can receive. It is just, instead of your own country, you get your own state, which is not a really big difference. Commonia is good for that, because it is big, and basically can handle all the newbies coming. Also, you don't map in Commonia just like that, but rather practice. The skills you earn are later shown in your own territory. So yeah, Commonia is alright for now.

In conclusion, I do like the idea, but outside of the actual FSA.

I agree with @JoJoBa. With the claim of excessive motorways, and even in my opinion, there are some where not needed, as well as huge cities where they shouldn't be, this is overall a very bad idea.

Honestly, sometimes I wish the back side of the moon was the only blue territory.

No. There are five collaborative territories already in the FSA, and a few vacant states are already designated “no questions asked” beginner territories. There are plenty of ways newer mappers can get involved in the FSA.

I swore I read somewhere around the establishment of the FSA that some part of it was going to be a blue territory in the future, but I can't for the life of me find it.

Regardless, I think we have more than enough blue areas on the planet, and we got plenty of collaborative states in the FSA. If we have a blue territory in the FSA, great. If not, it's not the end of the world.

From: https://wiki.opengeofiction.net/wiki/index.php/OGF:About_AR120 It Says, "In addition, at least three collaborative states will be established, for mappers who want to build in the country without owning a state themselves: AR120-11, on the east coast; AR120-43, in the center of the country; and AR120-84, on the west coast. These will become available for the general community to edit as soon as coordinators can be selected."

Best Wishes, CK

I had actually once suggested for the capital to be blue, though for now I think it is best to leave it for all FSA users only.

Ah, so that was why I somehow remembered something about a blue territory in the works for the FSA when it was getting started. Turns out I was just misremembering. Thanks for clearing that up, ZK!
